An exquisite perennial that produces an upright rosette of large, broad, slightly keeled leaves from a large, underground bulb. The solitary inflorescence grows to about 1 m tall and holds countless, star-shaped, scented, blue flowers. Merwilla plumbea is native to southern Africa where it is found in a variety of usually moister habitats. In cultivation it adapts well to most warm temperate climates. Seeds germinate quickly but seedlings resent disturbance. In habitat, Merwilla is increasingly threatened by large scale collection of the bulbs for traditional medicine.

Caution; Toxic if eaten / skin & eye iritant.

    Sowing; Sow in spring to autumn in a tray or small pots of seed compost, covering lightly with compost. Germination takes 1-2 weeks at room temperature.  Natural warmth is better than a propagator.  Transplant seedlings into pots when they are big enough to handle and into pots or the garden after the last frost.  

    Growing; Plants take 3 to 4 years to form large enough bulbs to flower.  The bulbs should sit naturally ½ to 2/3rds above the ground. The bulbs will not survive prolonged or severe frost, and they can be lifted in autumn, stored in a frost free place and the replanted in pots in early spring, for taking out into the garden in late spring.  Bulbs can be left in the soil over winter in warmer Mediterranean climates.  Mature plants produce off-sets which can be removed when the bulbs are dormant and grown on into new plants.
